As an author, CD(DONA) doula, Birthing Mama® Prenatal Yoga and Wellness Teacher Trainer, and mother, Amy Wright Glenn draws upon a great deal of professional and personal experience in crafting quality, hands-on, and inspiring Breath and Movement Birth Preparation classes for expectant couples.
Too often childbirth education courses are lecture-based. Yet, women give birth through their bodies and the process of preparing for birth, at its best, involves the conscious and mindful integration of body, mind, spirit, and breath practices.
Having written about the need for a woman’s intuitive and primal strength to be respected in birthing and breastfeeding, Amy combines both strength and gentleness to the task of supporting new parents. She skillfully custom tailors her classes to meet the needs, concerns, and hopes of each individual birthing couple in the safety and peace of their own home.
